How To Ask For A Sign

The Eye of God – Helix Nebula from www.skyimagelab.com

“The Universe sets out little signposts for us along the way, to confirm that we’re on the right path.” 
~  Michelle Maisto

 

This week’s energies are supportive of connection, communication, signs, breakthroughs and synchronicities (you can read more about that here).

But how do you ask for a sign?

I recommend that you ask only once, and then satisfy yourself with the answer as it appears to you.

Here are some things that you can try:

Shuffle your oracle or tarot cards, offer up a small prayer that whatever you do be for your Highest Good, and then shuffle the deck again. As you’re shuffling, ask your question . Say it out loud or hold it as a thought in your head. Either will work.

Choose one card. How you choose is up to you. Split the deck. Fan them out. Top or bottom. Dive right in. There is no right or wrong.  Then really look at the card. Don’t use the book or the ‘proper’ meaning. We are being intuitive here, people! What stands out for you in the picture? What thoughts and ideas do the images provoke? What is the answer that comes to you? Trust that. Don’t ask again.

Ask for your Guide to appear as an animal or some other living thing, some sort of motif that you will associate with them and with their presence.

Ask to see a specific image or thing, as acknowledgement of a question, or in answer to it.  Perhaps you are driving and you ask to see a red Kombi van if the answer is yes.  Or you ask to see a particular type of bird or something else you’ll recognise as that sign…

Ask, and then expect an answer.  Perhaps the answer will be a message on a  billboard, a line from a book, a voice on the radio, the words in a song.  The message will stand out for you somehow, and have a special meaning just for you.

Angels are often associated with white feathers.  Guides are often associated with other coloured or patterned feathers.  I have found feathers during some of the most difficult times in my life, and have felt reassured by them showing up for me.

When I sense my Great Aunt’s presence I smell roses.  When my Grandmother is near, I smell or even see gardenias.  A friend smells tobacco smoke when her father is with her.  Sometimes loved ones will create a breeze where there was none, stop or start a clock, or move something.  Whatever they do will make sense to you, based on your relationship with them.

Sometimes God creates magnificent signs, for no reason other than to help us remember the love and miracles in our world…

And sometimes it’s well-meaning friends who help us know what’s in store for us on the road in life…

When the road ahead is uncertain, when you need to know you’re supported, when you are looking for answers – it’s okay to ask for a sign.  But do it once, and trust what you get!

A message from the Universe

“But listen to me. For one moment
quit being sad. Hear blessings
dropping their blossoms
around you.” 
~ Rumi

As I was sitting in meditation this morning, thinking about you and how I could best be of service today, I realised that there was something you needed to hear right now. So let me bring these messages to you, direct from the Universe. You’ll know which part of the message is for you. It’s the one that stands out, the one that moves you, the one that answers the question on your lips.

You are enough.

Valentine Cupcake Oracle – A Reading for Love!

Image from www.indulgewithme.blogspot.com

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
~ Rumi

Valentine’s Day has a wonderful sentiment – that we should celebrate love and lovers, that we should name the emotions that often sit silent in our heart.

But why have just one day for the celebration of love?  Why not live with that sense of appreciation and joy every day! And of course it’s not just for the young, for couples, and for romantic love.  Love is an emotion that is available to us all.

Today’s blog gives you a mini-reading about love, in many different forms. It’s not a fortune-telling exercise for finding a soul mate, instead it’s about letting more love into your life. All you need to do is scroll through the pictures of my Valentine Cupcakes, and choose the one that appeals to you most. Then go further down the page to read the meaning for the cake you have chosen.

♥♥♥ Love, love, love to you, Nicole xoxo ♥♥♥

♥ The Love Message and Gift of each Cupcake ♥

Each Valentine Cupcake has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your cupcake.  You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now.  You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing.

 Jewelled Delight – Bling and Beauty! It’s time to feel good about yourself and your surroundings. Take pride in your appearance. Have a facial, or treat yourself to a haircut. Paint your toenails a pretty colour, or buy yourself a new outfit. Tidy a corner of your home, put a bunch of fresh flowers on the table, or anything else that lifts your spirit and makes you feel good.  *If you’re in a relationship, or happy on your own, spend your time making yourself feel good. If you’re single think of joining an internet dating site or a dinner group – it’s time to put yourself out into the world.  ♥ Best Crystal – Clear Quartz  ♥ Power Word – Colour  Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that uplifts you.  A salon or day spa, an art gallery or favourite cafe, a florist shop or a beautiful garden.

Wedded Bliss – Acknowledging the love that’s already in your life. Spend time with the important people in your life.  It might be your partner, a best friend, a family member or a pet. We sometimes take the love of others for granted.  What can you do to let another know that you value and appreciate them? Don’t forget quality time for yourself too! *If you’re in a relationship, honour and celebrate your togetherness. If you’re happily single, dwell on the things you like about yourself. If you’re looking for love, get clear about what your values are, and what you’re looking for in a partner.  Don’t settle for second best.  Best Crystal – Rose Quartz   Power Word – Gratitude  Magical Healing Environment – Togetherness, wherever that works best for you.  Cuddles, time together over a meal or a coffee, phone calls, a movie, spending time doing something you used to do together but don’t get time for anymore.

 Red Velvet Supreme – Adventures in Sensuality.  There is so much need for some pleasure and sensuality in your life right now. Explore tastes and textures, indulge all of your senses, make time for massages, lovemaking, dancing and beautiful food. Buy yourself some gorgeous underwear, perfume or body lotion. Let yourself come alive again. *For couples, find ways to bring magic back into your relationship. For happily singles, nurture and nourish your senses.  If you’re looking for love, embrace your sensual side. Think about what pleasure means to you, and get comfortable with it!   Best Crystal – Garnet   Power Word – Feel   Magical Healing Environment – anything that reconnects you to your senses.  Bubble baths, clean sheets, music, dancing, lying in dappled sunlight on soft green grass, ocean swims, perfume and cologne, warm embraces, patisseries and chocolate shops.

 Monster Love – The Call to Create.  Love expresses itself often through creativity. What do you love to do? Or a better question, what did you ‘used to love to do’? Reacquaint yourself with lost loves, be that art, craft, music, foods, hobbies, places or activities. Make room for a creative project in your life, or at least rub shoulders with creative spaces for a while. *For couples, find a common creative interest and go do that thing together. For happily singles make room in your life for something that gives you creative joy. For those of you looking for love, join a group or class that supports a creative interest. And watch out for pregnancies – the ultimate form of creativity!  Best Crystal – Fluorite   Power Word – Explore   Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that gets you in that creative mood. Hardware stores, book stores, craft supply shops, kitchen stores, the library, or wherever you can make, create and play.

 Flower Garden – Old Fashioned Pleasures. Think romance, think fun, think things and activities that make you happy, especially from your past. Did you adore the music of the eighties, black and white movies, roller skating? Allow yourself the gift of time to relax, unwind and take a trip down memory lane. Love can often be found in the pages of a photograph album, or a record collection. *Couples, go hang out in a place that reminds you of happy times from your beginnings. Happily singles, indulge in some sentimentality. If you’re single, make room for a new relationship by creating a space that truly honours and reflects who you are. Be prepared for wonderful new friendships and a little romance. ♥ Best Crystal – Moonstone   Power Word – Remember  Magical Healing Environment – Time for yourself and your interests. Catch up with friends and family, take time to revisit happy aspects of your past, do things you used to enjoy, visit places that hold fond memories.  If it’s appropriate take a friend who shares those memories too.

 Snake Cake – Celebration and Reward  Think of something you really want to do. This year’s the year to make it happen. But don’t just plan and action your idea. Think of how you can reward yourself for completing this dream. Plan your time of celebration and reward. *For couples, talk about your future, and plan a holiday or something meaningful. Happily singles – be bold in deciding what you want, and equally bold in considering your rewards.  For those of you seeking love, set your sights high and know that this is the year you can make your romantic dreams come true.  Best Crystal – Tiger Eye   Power Word – Goals   Magical Healing Environment – Time On Your Own.  Plan out your future, a future that you’ll love. Spend time thinking about what positive changes you can make in your life and know that the Universe is supporting you to do so.

Cookies and Cream – Comfort, Cuddles and Candlelight.  It’s time to do some serious nurture – of yourself, and of your relationship, if you’re in one. Think cuddles, snuggles and time together.  Think hand-holding, curling up on the couch together, and romantic get-aways. Think rest, renewal and revitalisation. *For couples, get cosy! Hug one another and be kind and generous with compliments and gratitude. For happily singles, treat yourself to a good book and some doona time, cuddles with your pets, and lots of lovely rest and nurture. If you’re looking for love, spend time visualising how wonderful it will be to have someone to cherish, and who cherishes you. Let yourself dream a little!  Best Crystal – Rhodochrosite   Power Word – Adore  Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that gives rest, nurture and comfort.  A mountain or beach getaway, a picnic hamper and a rug, a weekend in bed just because you can.

 Hidden Heart – Bringing Your Secret Desires to Life.  What makes your heart sing? Inside you is something so important, so private and around which there is such longing. Don’t be afraid. Open your heart. It’s time! *For couples, share those secret dreams. Make room in your life for new possibilities. If you’re happy on your own, spend time journalling and making room for these ideas to surface. For those of you seeking soul mates, allow yourself to hope.  Imagine your future with your own dreams and room to share them with someone special. ♥ Best Crystal – Prehnite  ♥ Power Word – Passion ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Time to connect with your heart and emotions.  Give yourself permission to dream, and to honour your most sacred plans. It’s time to live your best life.

(If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now.  You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing this week.

♥ Golden Lotus – Celebration of BEing.  There is a sense of possibility and new beginnings creeping into your life. Old worries, patterns and limitations will fall away. You are becoming more comfortable in your own skin.  Now is the time to enjoy each moment. Find gratitude for the many small blessings in your day. Trust that your life is unfolding as it should.♥ Best Crystal – TIGERS EYE  ♥ Power Word – BLESSINGS  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Time on your own  Spend time in your own company to begin exploring these mental and emotional shifts. Take long walks, meditate, journal and listen to music.

♥ Frangipani – Companionship and Family. An ideal time for nurturing existing relationships and attracting new ones. Make the time to share a coffee or a meal. Plan a get-together, party, reunion or celebration. ♥ Best Crystal – UNAKITE  ♥ Power Word – CONNECTION ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere where sharing and friendship takes place. Join a club, team or a service group. Drop in on friends or create opportunities for friendship. Invite new friends and old into your life again.

♥ Pink Lotus – Speak Your Mind.  You’re considerate by nature. Maybe too much so sometimes.  There are opportunities now for you to change the dynamic in existing relationships by calmly and politely speaking your truth. Acknowledge your thoughts and feelings. Allow for the possibility of movement and positive change in places where there has been pain and stuckness. ♥ Best Crystal – PINK TOURMALINE  ♥ Power Word – HONESTY ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Sitting in your Truth  Nowhere to go but in! Spend time in contemplation and reflection. Do things that nurture your spirit. Say YES to what uplifts and inspires you and NO to what drags you down.

♥ Folded Lotus Buds – Physical Purity.  Ready for an overhaul?  Detoxify, exercise, change your diet and put energy into feeling the best that you can feel.  You are being called upon to honour the physical and to make peace with your body. Do all you can to care for and be comfortable with it. Seek healing. Make healthy choices. Don’t put this off any longer. It’s time to change!  ♥ Best Crystal – MOONSTONE  ♥ Power Word – VITALITY  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Movement and Rest. Alternate between moving your body (walking, swimming, yoga, gym etc) and resting through massage, meditation, relaxing baths or an early night. Learn to work with the natural rhythm of your body.

♥ Red Ginger – Progress and Powering On. You are reaching a place of creativity and decisiveness.  Trust your instincts around business, study and career. Get clear about your goals and dreams and then make plans for the year ahead to bring those dreams to fruition. ♥ Best Crystal – CARNELIAN  ♥ Power Word – PASSION  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Planning Time. Action is important, but right now planning the time ahead is vital, and will decrease worry and increase productivity, giving you a sense of direction and control over your own life. Spend time writing, planning, charting and getting it all down on paper.

♥ Blue Butterfly – Personal Growth You’re entering a powerful phase of growth and transformation. Expect life-changing realisations, revelations and visions. Expect teachers, courses and resources to present themselves to you.  Honour this journey of healing and emotionally growing up as you step solidly into who you are; and live from your heart, with a clear mind and a clear conscience.  The best for you is yet to come. ♥ Best Crystal – LAPIS LAZULI  ♥ Power Word – KNOWLEDGE  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Learning Time.  Reading, thinking and reflecting is essential now. So is time spent with teachers and mentors. Apply your learning. Ask for guidance. And ask within as well as without.

♥ Spider Flower – Value and Honour Self.  Always, your pattern has been to judge yourself harshly, and to excuse away the insensitivities, faults and mistakes of others. But this needs to change.  You are a good person. You are kind. You see the best in others, and wish the best for them. It’s time to forgive yourself for all the perceived shortcomings and failures you see in you! It’s time to treat yourself with that same wisdom, compassion and kindness.  ♥ Best Crystal – ROSE QUARTZ  ♥ Power Word – ACCEPTANCE  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Spending time doing what interests you  Listen to music that YOU love, eat or cook food that YOU love, watch YOUR choice of shows on TV, sign up for a class YOU want to do. Stop putting everyone else first and make one corner of your life all about you. That’s not selfish – that’s self care!

♥ Purple Orchid – Voices of Angels  A time of spiritual and creative awakening. You are being Guided by Loved Ones who’ve crossed over, by Spirit Guides and Angels, and by your own host of Muses.  Stay open to ideas, impressions, feelings, vision and dreams. You’ll be Guided to make breakthroughs in areas of your life where you have had blockage, pain, loss and sorrow for many years. ♥ Best Crystal – FLUORITE  ♥ Power Word – RECEIVING ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Inspiring Locales Concerts, theatre, art galleries, libraries, cathedrals, nature, travel, wild places, time with good people, book shops, antique stores, markets, restaurants, gardens, restful places – be inspired by the world around you.  Look for signs and messages everywhere.

Your Soul Message for today – find the message that corresponds to your flower. Trust that within that message is something useful for you.

Image one:

Take a stand for the things that you believe in.  Offer up your opinion and don’t be shy about speaking your truth.  You have so many good ideas and valid points of view, and the world is poorer if you never share them. Self-belief is strengthened through action! Whether it’s speaking, writing, having that conversation, applying for that job or course of study or seizing that opportunity – be bold and begin.

A good crystal for you today is Citrine.

Image two:

Trust in your dreams.  The idea you have is worth nurturing. In time it has the possibility to grow in to the thing that you hope for it to be.  Spend a little time each day with your idea. Tend it, work with it, and help it to grow. The Universe is saying Yes to you, and offering validation and encouragement for you to continue – taking your idea from mere thought into the beginnings of reality. Make a plan, put energy into it and you WILL be rewarded.

Time to focus on your health. Embrace new forms of exercise that encourage flow and suppleness. Make changes to the way you eat so that you include more food with real life force, such as fresh vegetables and fruits. Drink more water. Reduce the stresses in your life.  Find a support team to help you – whether it’s a personal trainer, yoga teacher, acupuncturist, psychologist, doctor, accountant or meditation teacher. Book in for a check-up, go see the dentist, attend to the things that have been quiet worries in the back of your mind.  It’s time for an overhaul, and by working on the physical body, your emotional and spiritual body will come back into balance too.

Open your heart. Love is right here on your doorstep, or in the taxi and on it’s way to you.  You are deserving of all that is good in life, and you have so much love to share. Trust that now is the time for entering or strengthening and renewing beautiful love relationships.  There’s no need to be stressed or needy around relationships. The Universe wants you to know that you are Loved, and that now is your time. Trust.  Be ready. If you are in a relationship already, look at it with new eyes. If you are currently alone, know that you will not remain so. Have fun with it.  Trust in good outcomes. Let yourself shine. Begin by falling in love with yourself a little.
